Bon Iver: Bon Iver (4AD / Jagjaguwar)

Bon Iver’s self-titled sophomore is emotionally revelatory to those sensitive bearded men who have cried to this sensitive bearded man’s pathos-inducing debut, For Emma, Forever Ago.

Now instead of moping to depressing music, they can cry to how beautiful life is as lead single ‘Calgary’ plays in the background. Tracks are named after imaginary and real places which show that obliqueness is still in fashion (take note, post-rockers).

It may sound like we hate this album, but really we don’t. Any album that can make you look at Zach Gafilianakis with empathy is deserving of admiration.

LISTEN TO: ‘Calgary’ ‘Beth/Rest’
IF YOU LIKE THIS YOU’LL DIG: Fleet Foxes, being sensitive
RATING: 3
